Is there a way to copy Word 2007 User Assigned keyboard shortcuts to another system?

(Right now I am manually setting them up again.)

If not, then is there a way to tell what keyboard shortcuts were set up by the user?

This way I will be able to set them all up at once, instead of waiting until they are used.

Does the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard meet your needs?

(I hope you don't mind that I won't take a bunch of space copy/pasting what's in the link. The complete description and instructions are available there.)

I have just looked through the configuration settings for the File and Settings Transfer Wizard as I know that moves them... It looks like all user related settings are created and kept in the word12.pip file located in

(Vista & 7)

(Above should work, but for actual path... if my username is Wil)


    %userprofile%\local settings\application data\roaming\microsoft\office\
(Above should work, but for actual path... if my username is Wil)
    c:\users\wil\local settings\application data\roaming\microsoft\office

(p.s. please tell me if I am wrong, been a while since I have used XP and just trying to remember the paths - I think that is where it should be.)
